Spring Cleaning, Areas That Deserve Your Attention!
Are you feeling the urge to tackle home maintenance this season? While you’re probably up on the basics of spring-cleaning, like washing windows, cleaning blinds and shampooing rugs, there are several areas you may overlook.
• Rather than wait for the telltale chirp signifying low power, use daylight saving time or a holiday like Memorial Day as a reminder to replace the batteries in all of your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
• If vitamins, prescriptions and other medication are unused or expired, safely purge them. Not everything should go in the trash, though. Determine if you can flush what you have or if you need to find a location that will dispose of it for you.
• Have you thought about cleaning the machines that do the cleaning for you? This simple task can help your washing machine, dishwasher and other gadgets run more efficiently.
• When was the last time you removed the dust that’s accumulated on the ceiling fans? If it’s been a while, now’s the time to tackle it. Simplify the process and trap the dust by slipping a damp pillowcase over each blade and slowly pulling it back. There’s no point in cleaning if you’re using dirty tools for the job. Be sure to replace sponges regularly and run cleaning cloths through a hot-water cycle in the washer. And don’t forget the broom, which deserves a shake, vacuum and hose down to keep it clean and useful.
